From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.2+) Gecko/20010705 BuildID: 2001070515 when mozilla has any window open anywhere (mail or browser, including minimized), Process Viewer reports that LaunchCFMApp (pertaining to Mozilla) is using 85-99% of the CPU. if mozilla has no active tasks, the cpu usage goes way down (> 1%). why does mozilla need to use that much of my processor (G4 - 500 MHZ) all the time? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. launch process viewer 2. launch mozilla 3. load any web page / open mailnews Actual Results: process viewer reports at least 90% cpu usage for mozilla (LaunchCFMApp) all the time. Expected Results: used some CPU power and then maybe idled down some threads? like when all windows are minimized? sorry to bitch about performance, i'm sure you get enough. especially on some special carbonized build for OSX.
